This slim and focused guide to understanding and analyzing perspective in drawing was written by T. Heaton Cooper, a longtime instructor at the Cleveland School of Art. It consists of 50 examples: every left-hand page features a graphic representation of the written descriptions on the opposite page, providing an improved understanding of the concepts via visual examples. Discussions and directions on foreshortening and shadows in relation to perspective complement the illustrations.
Students, art teachers, and artists wishing to improve their skills will find this book an ideal resource for study and reference. Its compact size will make it an easy addition to the paint box or sketch kit.
